(33-56): Read the following questions carefully and choose the right answer –
33.If an article was sold at 18% profit on cost price then the selling price of the article was Tk. 9381. What would have been the selling price of the article if it was sold at 25% profit?
(A) Tk. 9984.5
(B) Tk. 9927.5
(C) Tk. 9937.5
(D) None of these
Answer: (C) Tk. 9937.5
Let the CP of the article = x
Then 18% profit on x = (100 + 18)% of x = 9381
X =    (9381 × 100)/118 = 79.5 × 100 = 7950 = cp
When article was sold at 25% profit then CP = 125% of 7950 = 9937.5

34.In each of these questions, two equations (I) and (II) are given. You have to solve both the equations and give answer.

Answer: (A) x <y
(I). 39×2 – 31x – 28 = 0
Or, 39×2 – 52x + 21x – 28 = 0
Or, (3x – 4) + 7(3x – 4) = 0
Or, (13x + 7)(3x – 4) = 0
Or, x = –7/13, 4/3
(II). y2 – 25y + 114 = 0
Or, y2 – 19y – 6y + 114 = 0
Or, y(y – 19) – 6(y + 19) = 0
Or, (y – 19)(y – 6) = 0
Or, y = 19, 6

35.A box contains 21 balls numbered 1 to 21. A ball is drawn and then another ball is drawn without replacement. What is the probability that both balls are even numbered?
(A) 2/7
(B) 3/14

38. A seller marks his goods 30% above their cost price but allows 15% discount for cash payment. His percentage of profit when sold in cash is
(A) 15%
(B) 99%
(C) 10.5%
(D) ৪.5%
Answer: (C) 10.5%
Let CP of the goods = x.
Marked price of the goods = x×(100+30)/100 = 13x/10
Now, SP of ‘the goods = (13x/10)×{(100−15)/100)} = 21x/200
Profit = (221x/200 −x)=Rs.21x/200
Hence, profit per cent = (221x/200)/x × 100% =2100/200 = 10.5%

(A) 3
(B) 2
(C) 0
(D) -2
Answer: (B) 2
2(2x-1)= 8(3-x)
Or, 2(2x-1) = 2(9-3x)
Or, 2x-1= 9-3x
Or, 5x = 10
Or, x = 2

41. If x=2 then the value of x3 +27×2 +243x +631 is
(A) 1211
(B) 1231
(C) 1321

Answer: (D) 1233
x3 +27×2 +243x +631
= x3 + 3.x2.9 +3.x.92 +93 -98
=(x+9)3 – 98
= (2+9)3 – 98
= 1331-98
= 1233

(C) 15% .
(D) 7.5%
Answer: (C) 15% .
SI= (105000-42000) = 63,000
42,000×10×r/100 = 63,000
Or, r = 63,000×100/(42,000×10)
Or, r = 15%

(A) 15
(B) 25
(C) 18
(D) None of these
Answer: (D) None of these
Total age of 20 aspirants = 20 × 19.2 = 384
Total age of 22 aspirants = 22 × 19.5 = 429
Total Age of new aspirants = 429 – 384 = 45 years
But we can not find the difference of the new aspirants’. So answer is can’t be determined.

(D) Tk.7000
Answer: (A) Tk.5000
P:Q= 6000:3000= 2:1
Q invest = x
P invest = 20,000
(20,000)/2x= 2/1
Or, 4x= 20,000
Or, x = 5000

(C) 66 km/hr
(D) 44 km/hr
Answer: (C) 66 km/hr
Let, Car speed = x
L= (x-6)×5×9/18
L= (x-12)×5×10/18
(x-6)×5/2= (x-12)×25/9
Or, 45×(x-6)= 50×(x-12)
Or, 9×(x-6)= 10×(x-12)
Or, 9x-54= 10x-120
Or, x= 66 km/hr

50. The ratio of the present age of father to that of son is 7:2. After 10 years their ages will be in the ratio of 9:4. The present ages of the father is
(A) 35 years
(B) 40 years
(C) 30 years
(D) 25 years
Answer: (A) 35 years
At present, Father’s age = 7k and Son’s =2k
After 10 year, Father’s age will be = 7k+10 and Son’s =2k+10
(7k+10)/(2k+10) = 9/4
Or, 24k + 40 = 14k + 90
Or, k = 5
Present age of father = 7×5= 35 year

51. A driver of an auto rickshaw sees a lorry 60 m ahead of him. After 30 seconds the lorry is 90 m behind. If the speed of the auto rickshaw is 38 km/hr. then what is the speed of the lorry?
(A) 23 km/hr
(B) 25 km/hr
(C) 20 km/hr
(D) 18 km/hr
Answer: (C) 20 km/hr
Relative speed =   Total distance/ Total time = (60 + 90)/30   = 5 m/s = 5 × 18/5        = 18 kmph
Now relative speed = speed of auto rickshaw – speed of lorry
or, 18 = 38 – speed of lorry
So, Speed of lorry = 38 – 18 = 20 km/h

52. If the ratio of speed of doing work of three persons is 1:3:5. what is the ratio of time taken by these people to do the same amount of work?
(A) 15:5:3
(B) 15:5:7

(A) π
(B) 3π
(C) 2π
(D) None of these
Answer: (B) 3π
Hypotenuse = √{(18/10)2+ (24/10)2}
= √{(81/25)+(144/25)}
= √(225/25)
= √9
= 3
So, Diameter = 3
Circumference = Dπ= 3π

54. √(112 + 34 × 7-132 +10) = ?
(A) 25
(B) 19
(C) 21
(D) 23
Answer: (D) 23
√(112 + 34 × 7-132 +10)
= √(121+81×7-169+10)

= 23

55. 8 years ago, the ratio of A’s age to B’s age was 4:5. At present the ratio of B’s age to C’s age is 4:5. At present, the difference between A’s age and C ‘s age is 20 years, then what is the sum of the ages of A, B and C?
(A) 138 years
(B) 164 years
(C) 148 years
(D) 152 years
Answer: (C) 148 years
8 years ago, A’s age = 4x, B’s = 5x
Present age of A = (4x+8) and B’s = (5x+8)
Present age of C = p
(5x+8)/p = 4/5
Or, 25x -4p = – 40 —-(1)
P – (4x+8) = 20
Or, 4x – p = – 28 —(2)
(1) – (2)×4,
25x – 4p – 16x + 4p = – 40 + 112
Or, 9x = 72
Or, x = 8
And, p = 4×8+28 = 60
Present age of C = 60
And, present age of A = (4×8+8) = 40
And, present age of B = (5×8+8) = 48
So, A + B + C= 40+48+60= 148
